Brooklyn - Canon - Fat Moose

Bring It In Brooklyn by Canon

Fat Moose crossed the Brooklyn Bridge to go bowling with Canon last week:

The Japanese multinational company of cameras, Canon, organized a chill afternoon bowling session centered around five hit-Instagramers:

Amy Stone, Stefan Karlstrom, Natalie Amrossi, Rob Ceos and Scott Borrero.

So we decided to put on our bowling shoes and learn some photography tips from the pros.

Upon arrival we were given cameras and invited to talk to professional photographers and Canon assistants. We explored the local, venturing from Amy Stone’s photo booth to Stefan Karlstrom’s food photography table. First tip: eating the food DOES help you to understand how to get the right angle for your photograph’s composition.

But let’s get a bit more serious and technical: here are our top tips from Brooklyn.

NATURE SHOTS:

  • To shoot an outdoor portrait your focal length should be at 70mm or higher, never less than 50 mm, if not your subject will be distorted
  • If your photos are coming out too dark, try increasing your ISO
  • On cloudy days, it is essential to think about your wardrobe; use your white balance to control any unwanted color cast in your image
  • To add style to a good photo with bad lighting don’t hesitate to switch to black and white mode or any other filter that suites your aesthetic

CITY PICTURES:

  • Whether you are trying to take a street portrait of a stranger or friend, try making direct eye contact first, this adds a sense of human connection and it really comes through in a photo
  • The city is your playground; try to capture any contrast and truly explore even the strangest of places.
  • Try using aperture priority (Av) mode and set the F-stop to the lowest possible number for a shallow deph-of-field. This allows your subject to remain the focus of your image, especially when there is a busy background.
  • Fisheye lenses make your audience feel like they’re part of the action and creates an interesting aesthetic.
  • Try shooting in the evening and during twilight to get more dramatic pictures

Cameras Used:

Canon EOS rebel t6i: you can easily take professional level quality photographs. This camera is the best for the inner city traveller and jungle explorer as well! And a definite perk is the wifi on the camera, which makes for easy uploading.

Canon G7x: small and easy to carry around, we love this baby for its awesome creative mode that allows you to take several pictures at the same time with different settings and focus.

Thank you Canon for this amazing event and for all the tips. Best bowling game ever!
